Wilmington' s fourth and final Vietnam memorial was dedicated in 1985. The monument honoring 
Pfc. John Rich was dedicated on May 5, 1985 near Avco on Lowell Street. Monuments Imve been 
previously set honoring Richard Welch, John Fullerton and Robert Parent. Each monument is cid from 
a block of native Wilmington granite and carries a cutting of black granite from the national Vietnam 
Monument in Washington D. C. On this black granite is the name of each soldier as it appears on the 
monument in Washington. The placement and dedication of the monuments was a project of Commander 
Fred Shine of the Wilmington Disabled American Veterans, Chapter 106. The Town wishes to thank 
Commander Shine, the Board of Selectmen and D. P. W. Superintendent Robert Palmer for their efforts 
in making these memorials a reality.

BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



1985 proved to be a year of progress and promise for the Town of Wilmington. In July 
there was the long awaited ground breaking for renovations and additions to Wilmington 
High School. Articles passed at the Annual Town Meeting included a moratorium on the 
sale of town-owned land, computerized linkage for the library, the purchase of a new 
ladder truck, a water treatment plant, a proposal to study alternate means of receiving 
electric power, and the establishment of a handicapped commission. 

A proposal for an office building at Silver Lake dominated the news, and the issue was 
resolved when a Special Town Meeting voted to buy the land in question. Zoning and 
rezoning figured prominently in the news. A proposal for a motel at the intersections 
of Routes 93 and 62, as well as PRD zoning for a condominium project for land off Broad 
Street were rejected. A proposal for a nursing home on Hillside Way near the Burlington 
line brought protests from the residents of the area. Protests were also heard from the 
residents of Burlington Avenue regarding a large subdivision proposed for the Roberts 
Estate. 

The Wilmington Selectmen met with the Selectmen from three other towns to plan a course 
of action relative to Reading Municipal Light Department. The Wilmington Chamber of 
Commerce and the Town filed petitions with the Massachusetts Department of Public 
Utilities challenging the rates and practices of the company; and, the Department has 
accepted jurisdiction for an investigation. At a rate increase hearing, proposed rate 
increases met strong objection. The Reading Municipal Light Department announced a rate 
cut for residential customers. However, at an October hearing by the Massachusetts 
Department of Utilities, Town officials and residents spoke against the practices of the 
Reading Municipal Light Department. 

The Wilmington Water and Sewer Commissioners announced a discharge monotoring system to 
detect dumping of corrosives into the sewer. A chemical leak at the Olin Chemical Plant 
on Eames Street resulted in the evacuation of the area surrounding the plant. The Board 
of Selectmen have pledged whatever help necessary to the Board of Health to solve the 
problems with chemical industries in south Wilmington. 

The Special Town Meeting held in December was monumental in several ways: first, the 
voters overwelmingly approved a town by-law regulating underground storage of petroleum 
products, and second, the voters denied the payment of a final court judgement levied by 
Federal Judge Robert E. Keeton in the Judy Freiwirth (Campaign to Stop the Euro-Missies) 

vs. the Town of Wilmington. 

A memorial was dedicated on May 5 to John Rich, a Wilminton Marine killed in Vietnam in 
1966. Tommy Sullivan, who retired as Tree Warden and Assistant Superintendent of the 
Department of Public Works in April, was killed on May 13 in a tree accident. School 
Committeeman and former Selectman John Brooks and former Principal Assessor, Stanley 
Webber, died in July. Charles Steeves, Assistant Superintendent of Maintenance for the 
Town, died suddenly shortly before Christmas. 

There were other rites of passage: Robert Horan was named Superintendent of Schools, and 
Henry Dembowski , Assistant; Ernest F. Romano retired as Director of Public Health, and 
Gregory Erickson has been appointed his successor; Dorothy Peters retired as Town 
Accountant, and Edward Walsh has been appointed as her replacement. Wilmington High 
School math teacher and track coach, Francis Kelly was honored as the "Good Guy" of 1985.

Familiar landmarks disappeared. The Walker School was torn down, and the Roman Carriage 

House was wantonly burned. However, the Towm Common blazed in full glory during the 

holiday season with new festive lights - and disspelled the memory of Hurricane Gloria 
which struck the Town in September. 



In retrospect: a year of promise and progress. The Selectmen conclude this report with 
an expression of deep appreciation to all those who serve the Town of Wilmington.

Town op Wilmington 

MASSACHUSETTS 01887 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington: 

"The American Revolution broke out, and the 
doctrine of sovereignty of the people came 
out of the townships, and took possession of 
the State. Every class was enlisted in its 
causes; battles were fought and victories 
obtained for it; it became the law of laws." 

Alexis DeToqueville 

Two hundred years ago Alexis DeToqueville saw "sovereignty of the people" as the "law of laws" in these 
United States. No place but in New England is sovereignty of the people more at home than in our unique 
town meeting system of government. Every registered voter has the opportunity to determine the fate of the 
municipality whenever a town meeting is convened. In 1985 Wilmington saw four town meetings which carried 
on the normal business of the town, set broad policy and specific by-laws which will change the fate of 
Wilmington for years to come. 

At the Annual Town Meeting the voters approved a twenty-five million dollar budget for Fiscal Year 1986. 
They supported a three year moratorium on the sale of town-owned land and required a study of the manner and 
means of the disposal of this town-owned land. This meeting took bold steps towards the creation of the 
town's own municipal electric department by dedicating an amount of funds to study this matter. Approval 
was given for a new water treatment plant in North Wilmington at $6.4 million dollars. The Wilmington 
Redevelopment Authority was given expanded jurisdiction to include the town center, particularly Route 38 
Main Street and Route 129, for the purposes of overseeing the center reconstruction and renovation program 
to be funded by the Commonwealth. The voters saw fit to create a Handicapped Commission. The Library 
Department was funded for a computer system that will link to the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium. 

At a special town meeting the townspeople voted to take a small parcel of land on Main Street at Silver Lake 
by eminent domain. The town paid $100,000 for that parcel. The voters also approved the transfer of the 
Town Forest from the care and custody of the Selectmen to that of the Conservation Commission. 

In the spring of 1985 the town honored P.F.C. John A. Rich, a serviceman killed in Viet Nam, by placing a 
monument in his honor at the Avco tennis courts on Lowell Street. The Disabled American Veterans provided 
the Selectmen with a P.0.W./M.I.A. flag to be flown at the Town Common. 

During the summer of 1985, the high school renovation and addition groundbreaking took place. Because of 
the inclement weather, the Town officials had to "break ground" in doors. This long awaited and much needed 
project was awarded to Sciaba Construction Company of Readville, Massachusetts for $5,116,050. Also, during 
the summer the Walker School was raised to make way for a playground, part of which will be named in the 
honor of Jason Stevenson. Jason was killed in front of the high school and he lived in the vicinity of the 
Walker School. On October 13 the Carriage House, which was recently moved to a site near the football 
field/track, was destroyed by a fire of suspicious origin. 

Hurricane Gloria swept through town in September and numerous trees were uprooted, thousands of limbs fell 
to the ground, and as a result, power was out in several parts of the community for a number of days.

Several ongoing projects need to be noted for 1985: Ballardvale Street, funded through a Massachusetts 
Department of Public Works Economic Development grant, was given an approval by the state environmental 
departments and construction was initiated. As a result, the first 1,500 feet of Ballardvale Street was 
straightend, widened and improved for drainage and traffic safety. The town's cable t.v. franchise with 
Greater Boston Cable Corporation was in in the process of negotiations during the year. The Reading 
Municipal Light Department was a subject of a study performed by Arthur D. Little. Several meetings were 
held with businesses and industries in Wilmington regarding the option of the creation of an independent 
power department utilizing co-generation; a technology which was once popular forty years ago, and it is now 
making a comeback because of the high cost nuclear power. 

There have been several committees at work reviewing the State's proposal for a new Route 62 Burlington 
Avenue Bridge and a renovation and reconstruction of the entire Town Center including Main Street, Church 
Street, Middlesex Avenue, and Olson Road. The Wilmington Board of Selectmen, Wilmington Redevelopment 
Authority, and the Chamber of Commerce have been working with Representative James R. Miceli to arrive at an 
acceptable design for the town. 

The Town also worked very closly with the Wilmington Housing Authority in the construction of elderly 
(Chapter 667) and family housing (Chapter 705). Eight units of family housing are scheduled to be built. 
The Board of Selectmen turned over eleven parcels to the Wilmington Housing Authority as potential scatter 
sites for low and moderate income family housing. In addition, at a Special Town Meeting in 1984, the town 
voted to contribute $144,000, approximately $18,000 per parcel, towards the construction of eight single 
family housing units. 

In November of 1985, Olin Chemical Group experienced a leak of hydrogen chloride gas, which resulted in the 
evacuation of more than 2,000 plant workers and approximately 300 residents in south Wilmington. This 
chemical incident jolted the consciousness of the entire community into thinking about worse-case scenerios 
regarding chemical incidents. As a result of this event and complaints regarding other chemical facilities 
in south Wilmington, the Board of Selectmen, the Board of Health, and the emergency response departments are 
now formulating plans to ensure that toxic leaks will not occur in the town. This is a long-term process 
and will involve administrative and legal procedures to insure that the health and safety of those who live 
and work in Wilmington will be protected. 

For Fiscal Year 1986 the Board of Selectmen, once again, voted to classify the tax rate. The residential 
rate was set at $13.70 and the commercial, industrial and personal property rate was set at $21.83. This is 
a sizeable reduction in the tax rate from previous years rates because of a recent update of the entire 
values in the community performed by the Board of Assessors. As a result of this update, the town's total 
value was increased from $631,329,000 to $930,377,655. Even though the tax rate decreased, the values of 
real estate increased by approximately 30% from 1984 to 1985. 

During the year the town witnessed the retirement of Dorothy L. Peters and the hiring of Edward F. Walsh, 
Town Accountant, and also the retirement of Ernest F. Romano, and the hiring of his replacement, Gregory P. 
Erickson, Director of Public Health. 

The policy makers of our community, the Board of Selectmen, working hand and hand with the Legislative arm 
of our government, the town meeting voters, were able to put life into DeToquevi 1 le ' s phrase "doctrine of 
sovereignty of the people." 

I wish to express my appreciation to the Board of Selectmen for their leadership and guidance during 1985, 
to the department heads for carrying out their administrative functions in a capable and professional 
manner, and to all the town employees for their whole-hearted cooperation and assistance. In addition, I 
wish to acknowledge the boards, committees, and commissions that give freely of their time for the 
betterment of the Town of Wilmington. To the entire Wilmington family, I say a hearty "thank you" for your 
cooperation during 1985, and I wish continued success for 1986.

Census, kept the voting list up-to-date, and registered voters during the regular office hours of the Town

-12- 



Board of Registrars 



In accordance with Section 1, Chapter 3 of the Town By-Laws, meetings of the Board of Registrars were held 
on the second Wednesday of each month for the registration of voters and to conduct business. Under Chapter 
616 of the Acts of 1958, these meetings were open to the public and press, and it is so posted in the Town 
Hall. 

The Board held registration periods as are required by law for the Annual Town Election § Town Meeting of 
April 20, and 27, the Special Town Meetings of March 18, April 27, and December 2, all in 1985. 

The Town Clerk attended most of the Conferences in order to keep up with the changing election laws and 
changes affecting the census. As State Census Coordinator, information for the 1986 census had to include 
three questions dealing with minority groups. 

The 1985 calendar year ended up with 9,792 registered voters. 

The Board of Registrars wants to thank all citizens of the town who returned their CENSUS forms. A true 
census is an asset to the town. 

According to Secretary of State Connolly, the decennial state census this year was especially important. It 
will determine the Commonwealth's Senate and Representative districts, and the distribution of state aid to 
the 351 cities and town of Massachusetts. 

The final count for the State Purposes was 17,704 with 195 people living out of town either at school or 
other facility, giving the town a true population of 17,899.

Town Engineer 



Evaluation of Work Load 

An examination of the work load for the Engineering Department reveals that we spent our time this year as 
follows: 5% Highway Department, 15% Water and Sewer Board, construction projects; 25% Planning Board, 
subdivisions; 20% Town Clerk; 15% town-wide and future projects; 10% Town Manager and Board of Selectmen; 
10% all others. 

In-House Procedures 

The up-dating of Assessors' maps continues to be a problem which requires a large part of our time, current 
up-dated Assessors' maps are a valuable tool for the town's citizens and other town departments, boards and 
ccmmiss ions. 

Projects for the Year 

The department provided inspections for 16 current subdivisions, 78 Official Map variances, for which 
streets are being constructed, and 22 projects approved under site plan review. 

Conclusion 

The department continues to adjust time and resource priorities to better serve town-wide interest, although 
with the rapid substantial increase in land values and building construction the department will have to 
adjust to a full-time inspection function for all personnel. 



Emergency Management 



The Civil Defense Agency for the Town was renamed Emergency Management in order to reflect the more 
realistic goals of the organization, which are to supply needed services to the citizens of Wilmington. 
This would include covering a wide spectrum of needs, from furnishing personnel and radios to assist at 
checkpoints for the annual Walk-a-Thon, to providing personnel and emergency communications during Hurricane 
Gloria and the recent industrial incident in south Wilmington. 

At the present time, the Agency has a very active and noted radio communications group comprised of fourteen 
F.C.C. licensed radio operators. This radio communications team is supervised by Mort Grant and Doug 
Chisholm. The base station for the Agency is located at the Nynex Tower at the junction of Routes 129 and 
38. The antenna mounted on top of the tower is 183 feet above ground level. Subsequently, the Emergency 
Management Agency has a communications capability noted as far superior to that of any of the 85 communities 
which comprise Area 1-D of Massachusetts Civil Defense. 

Another element of the Agency is the Dive Team, under the supervision of William Gable. The Dive Team 
recently purchased a new dry dive suit, flotation tank vests, as well as the newest type of air regulators. 

The rescue team, under the supervision of Mark DePasquale and Steven Larivee, is in the process of being 
reorganized and updated in terms of equipment. 

The Emergency Management Agency extends its thanks and appreciation to all who have supported its growth and 
development. It should be noted that the support of the Town Manager has been most helpful in elevating 
this Agency to its present status. It continues to be my sincere privilege to serve the Town of Wilmington 
as the Coordinator for the Emergency Management Agency.

Deputy Chief Stewart. 

The following personnel changes were made: Retired, William Lopez; resigned, Thomas Robbins. Privates, 
Christopher Nee, Brian Anderson, Daniel Stygles and Linda Giles graduated from the Mass. Fire Academy. 

The Fire Alarm Division tested all fire alarm boxes. All repairs were made to the system during the 
hurricane. After the hurricane, all circuits functioned properly. Fire Alarm had 82 changeovers. Five new 
master boxes installed in the municipal system. Extended 4,396 feet of RC wire. Removed one box from the 
Walker School. One box repaired. Fire alarm is in the process of getting new wire for additional circuits 
for Andover Street. Inspected seven new installations for hook-up to the municipal system. There are six 
additional new locations to be inspected and made ready this coming year. 

To comply with the Underground Tank Storage By-Law adopted at the Special Town Meeting of December 2, 1985, 
all underground tanks must be registered with the Town Clerk by April 2, 1986. 

I wish to extend my thanks to the staff and members of the Wilmington Fire Department for their support, 
loyalty and dedication to duty during 1985.

Public Buildings Department 



Renovations to the Buzzell School for the Senior Citizen Center continued throughout 1985. Participants in 
the renovation project were Shawsheen Tech, Carpenter's Union, Painter's Union and various industries. 
Occupancy is expected in early 1986. 

Work at the Swain School occupied much of the summer months. Extensive modification was required to fit the 
High School shops into the building. The shops will return to the High School after renovations are 
completed. 

Two door openings at the Fire Station were enlarged so the new ladder truck will fit in the building. 

A new roof was installed on the Town Hall. Extensive wiring was provided for the computer system at the 
Town Hall and Memorial Library. 

The Walker School was demolished in October. On the same weekend the former Maintenance Shop (Carriage 
House) was destroyed by fire. The Public Buildings Department offices and shop are now located in the 
former Whitefield School. 

Painting of the Harnden Tavern and barn was completed in November. 

Minimal building damage was caused by Hurricane Gloria. The High School gymnasium was used as an emergency 
shelter. The Emergency Preparedness Team also used the High School as a radio base. 

The above are the highlights of projects accomplished during 1985. 

Francis Crispo, Head Custodian North Intermediate School and Arthur Ryder, Custodian Town Hall retired 
during 1985. Thank you both for your years of service and best wishes in your retirement. 

Charles Steeves, Assistant Superintendent Public Buildings passed away in December. Lost to the Public 
Buildings Department was a leader, friend and valued employee. We shall miss him. 

To the department heads and employees that assisted the Public Buildings Department during 1985, thank you. 
Your assistance is most appreciated.

Police Department 



The enclosed statistical report represents the total for all crimes, complaints and incidents reported 
during 1985; and, for the most part, the corresponding enforcement efforts of the Wilmington Police 
Department. During 1985 the total number of complaints, and incidents reported to the police department 
increased by 18% from 10,966 in 1984 to 12,914 during 1985. For the most part these increases were in the 
areas of minor offenses and service related incidents. In fact the serious crime categories decreased 
significantly during 1985. Robberies and Sex Crimes were both decreased by 200%. Breaking and Entering 
homes and buildings were down by 42% from 206 incidents in 1984 to 119 in 1985. Totals for Assaults and 
Batteries were down by 34% from 44 in 1984 to 29 in 1985. Stolen motor vehicles were reduced by 14% from 85 
in 1984 to 73 in 1985. Although the police department experienced an increase of 1,948 complaints during 
1985, due to the decreases in these major crime categories, the Uniform Crime Reports compiled by the State 
and Federal Governments will show a reduction in crime rates for the Town of Wilmington. 

Motor vehicle accidents and traffic congestion continues to be a serious community problem. During 1985 the 
department investigated five (5) fatal accidents and numerous accidents involving serious personal 
injuries. This is the first time in five years that the community has experienced this number of 
fatalities. The total number of accidents increased by 66, from 1,330 in 1984 to 1,396 during 1985. The 
departments enforcement efforts to deal with this ever increasing problem is reflected in the traffic 
enforcement statistics for 1985. During the year the number of motor vehicle offenses cited increased by 
50% from 2,788 in 1984 to 4,197 in 1985. For the most part this increase is spread throughout the various 
categories of motor vehicle offenses. The major areas of increase were: speeding violations which increased 
by 51% from 1,408 in 1984 to 2,133 in 1985; miscellaneous violations increased by 100% from 963 in 1984 to 
1,470 in 1985; and, unregistered and uninsured violations increased by 65% from 118 in 1984 to 195 during 
1985. Although statewide statistics show a reduction in the number of arrest for operating under the 
influence, the department arrest have increased by 17% from 134 arrest in 1984 to 157 in 1985. 

Arrest for crimes other than motor vehicle increased by 43% from 552 arrest in 1984 to 789 in 1985. The 
major areas of increase were: arrest for liquor law violations increased by 286% from 63 in 1984 to 243 in 
1985; and, disorderly conduct arrest increased by 72% from 87 in 1984 to 150 during 1985. These increases 
and the increases in the motor vehicle law enforcement reflects the increased emphasis which the community 
and the police department have placed upon the enforcement of alcohol and drug related offenses. Due to the 
seriousness of these problems, the police department will continue our increased enforcment efforts in these 
areas. 

The department makes note of some personnel changes during 1985. Patrolman John "Leo" Markey retired from 
the police department after serving 34 years as a police officer for the Town of Wilmington. He will be 
missed greatly by the members of the department and the community as a whole. Leo, we all wish you health 
and happiness in your retirement. Officers Thomas A. Miller and Robert V. Richter were newly appointed to 
the department. 

In closing this report I want to thank the Town Manager, the Board of Selectmen, all other boards and 
committee's, department heads and their workers for their support and cooperation during 1985. A special 
note of thanks to the staff and members of the Wilmington Police Department for without their support and 
continuing efforts none of our accomplishments could have been realized.

Planning Board 



For the five volunteer members of the Planning Board, 1985 has been an extremely busy year. It was with 
regret, the Board accepted Ronald Coutu's resignation from the Board in August, leaving one vacancy for the 
remainder of the year. 

The Planning Coordinator continued to assist the general public Monday through Friday, and the Planning 
Board continued to meet weekly on Tuesday evenings in the Planning Board offfice, Room 6 at the Town Hall. 

SUBDIVISION CONTROL: 

Consuming most of the Board's time was the review of the following subdivision plans: 

Sixty-three plans believed not to require approval were submitted; the Planning Board found that 56 plans 
did not require approval under the Subdivision Control law and therefore were endorsed; one plan was found 
to require approval and therefore was denied for cause; two plans were withdrawn without prejudice; and 4 
plans the board chose not to take any action on. 

The Board collected a total of $24,889.56 in filing fees from the submission of the following subdivisions 
during 1985, these fees were turned over to the General Fund Account: 

. Great Neck Drive Definitive Plan - final fee on a 7 lot subdivision completed in 1985. 

. Ox Pasture Definitive Plan - fee for submission of the definitive plan showing 18 lots which said 
plan was disapproved by the Board. 

. Quarry Hill Definitive - final fee on the submission and approval of the definitive plan for 7 lots. 

. Oakland Park Definitive Plan - final fee on the approval of the definitive plan for 7 lots. 

Wilmington Technology Park - fee for the submission of the definitive plan and subsequent approval of 
an Industrial park consisting of 82 acres. 

. Tomahawk Drive Definitive Plan - final fee on the submission and approval of the definitive plan for 
10 lots. 

. Sidelinker Farm Definitive Plan - final fee on the submission and approval of the definitive plan for 
6 lots. 

Broad Street Definitive Plan - fee for the submission of the 11 lot subdivision approved with 
conditions by the Planning Board. 

. Apache Way Definitive Plan - fee for the submission of the 29 lot subdivision approved with 
conditions by the Planning Board. 

. Fox Run Drive Definitive Plan - fee for the submission of the 13 lot subdivision approved with 
conditions by the Planning Board. 

. Garden of Eden Preliminary !j Definitive Plan - fee for the submission of a proposed 25 lot 
subdivision decision pending. 

. Charles Place Preliminary Plan - fee for the submission of a proposed 52 lot subdivision. 

. Chestnut Estates Preliminary Plan - fee for the submission of a 17 lot subdivision. 

. Bedell Estates Definitive Plan - fee for the submission of a 27 lot subdivision, decision pending.

Department of Public Works 



In accordance with the By-laws of the Town of Wilmington, I hereby respectfully submit the Annual Report on 
the activities of the Department of Public Works for the year 1985. 

We now have five divisions in the Department of Public Works: Highway, Tree, Cemetery, Parks fj Grounds and 
Rubbish Collection/Disposal. The consolidation of the duties and responsibilities of these divisions under 
one Superintendent has allowed the Department of Public Works the ability to handle the peak work loads of 
each division with maximum efficiency. The unified planning has allowed the optimum use of equipment and 
manpower among the units. 

HIGHWAY DIVISION 

All maintenance work was carried out during the year such as sweeping streets, replacing broken curbing, 
painting and replacing guardrails, cleaning catch basins, patching streets, making and installing street and 
warning signs, cutting brush along our roadsides, grading back roads, etc. 

Drainage 

Drainage systems were installed, repaired or extended on the following streets: Hobson Avenue, Cross Street 
at Lowell Street, Harris Street, Wabash Road, Chestnut Street, Federal Street, Catherine Avenue, Aldrich 
Road and the cement box culvert near Dunkin Donuts. 

Chapter 90 Construction 

Began removing trees for the reconstruction of Aldrich Road. 
Chapter 90 Maintenance and Hot Top Program 

The following roads were upgraded with bituminous concrete: Park Street, Adams Street, Corey Avenue, Grand 
Street, Federal Street and King Street. 

Snow and Ice Removal 

Snow § Ice is a very expensive and major function of the Department of Public Works. We had 34 1/4" of snow 
for the year. 

Hurricane Gloria hit on September 27, 1985, and caused a lot of tree damage throughout the town. The 
Department of Public Works responded to the big cleanup job by collecting and disposing of over 1,200 truck 
loads of debris. Due to the hurricane, all other department projects had to be placed on hold for 
approximately one month until the cleanup was finished. 

A ramp was constructed at the Police Station to make the building accessible to everyone. 

TREE DIVISION 

The Tree Division carried out all regular maintenance work such as trimming, cutting, spraying and removing 
trees. We had to remove 62 roadside trees that were dead or interfered with public safety. Hornet nests 
were removed upon request. The Town Common was illuminated again this year with a fine display of Christmas 
lights. 

In memory of Thomas 0. Sullivan, Tree Warden and Assistant Superintendent of Public Works, the Fourth of 
July Committee donated trees that were planted on the Town Common. 

Dutch Elm Disease 

Samples from Elm trees, believed to be diseased, were sent to the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA. 
Those trees found to be diseased were removed. 



-22- 



Mosquito Control 

Mosquito control was done between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 12 midnight with U.L.V. Generator. Larvicide 
was administered to all trapped water holes. 

Insect Pest Control 

Spraying was done to try to control Gypsy Moth, Elm Leaf Beetles, Ticks, Japanese Beetles, and Eastern Tent 
Caterpillars. Spraying was also done to control the spread of poison ivy. 

CEMETERY DIVISION 

All regular maintenance was carried out throughout the year, such as mowing grass, winter graves were loamed 
and seeded, weeding, trimming and foundations were installed for monuments, etc. 

Cemetery employees helped reset monuments, throughout the cemetery, that were tipped over by vandals.

The following are some of the highlights: 

1. Woburn Street School - reconstructed another baseball field. 

2. Installed new player benches at the following locations: Town Park, Glen Road and Woburn Street School 
ballfields. 

3. Installed new gates at the Shawsheen School for the safety of the children. 

4. Hot topped the parking lots at the Shawsheen School, Town Hall, Wildwood School (front parking lot and 
driveway), Swain School, for the High School parking, and the Police Station. 

5. Relocated and repaired the playground equipment at the Town Hall from the front of the building to the 
play area near the ballfields. 

A new Vietnam v Veterans Park was dedicated in memory of John Allan Ricn. The park was constructed on land 
donated by Avco. 

RUBBISH COLLECTION AND DISPOSAL 

The contract for rubbish collection and disposal is now a functon of the Department of Public Works. If 
taxpayers have any questions or complaints, please call 658-4481. 

In concluding my report, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Police Department for keeping us 
informed during the winter months of the road conditions between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and 6:30 a.m., 
weekdays, weekends and holidays; the Water Department for their help during snow storms, and all the various 
departments for the cooperation extended during the year. I would also like to thank the Town Manager and 
the Board of Selectmen for their support throughout the year. Last, but not least, the employees of the 
Department of Public Works who made 1985 a very productive year, my sincere thanks and appreciation.

Library Trustees 



The Annual Town Meeting, April 1985, voted the funds necessary to allow the Town to join the Merrimack 
Valley Library Consortium. The Board of Trustees wishes to thank the people of the Town for their vote of 
confidence. Be assured that this Board does not take its responsibility lightly. We are in close contact 
with the Library staff and the tremendous progress being made in bringing this project to completion. 



Library Director 



At the Annual Town Meeting, held on Saturday, April 27, 1985, Article 26 was passed which permitted the Town 
to join the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium. In keeping with major trends in Massachusetts, the library 
has joined with fourteen other libraries to share patron access. Andover is the computer center with 
Chelmsford, Dracut, Hamilton, Haverhill, Lawrence, Lowell, Methuen, North Andover, North Reading, Tewksbury, 
Wenham, Westford and Billerica participating members. 

Three years of planning were involved in this major project. Christina Stewart and Christine Dehoff 
provided essential detail on several occasions, and have been hired as project supervisors on a part-time 
basis. The graphics and artwork of Susan MacDonald dramatically presented the proposal. A phased-in 
approach has been adopted, and four clerks have been hired part-time to do barcoding and data entry. 
Barcoding began in August and data entry began in October. It is a pleasure to report that the monthly 
objectives are being met, and the goal of going "on line" by the early summer of 1987 should be realized. 

The closer links with the Consortium, especially since the installation of the computer terminals, is seen 
in the rapid rise in interlibrary loans. Computer searches of M.V.L.C. holdings are now possible, providing 
prompt location and reservation of available books. Generally, service time in loans has improved, and 
interlibrary loans have increasaed by 51%. 

The library did not experience any changes in full-time staff during 1985. The regular staff and the 
M.V.L.C. people demonstrated a willingness to accept change and to work cooperatively. Their efficiency and 
enthusiasm are recognized and greatly appreciated. 

Orientation visits by high school students focused on bibliographic instruction and term paper 
organization. Seven hundred and fifty children ages 3 to 15 participated in the "Fantastic Summer" reading 
program. The program was the fourth cooperative summer project with the school system. The volunteer 
efforts of Jean Irving, Roberta Marino, Peggy Marrano, Helena Minton and Deborah Savage in the work of the 
Children's Department was much appreciated. 

The library expanded its shelving capacity; acquired a reader printer; had various displays of popular 
books; gave out free materials on drug abuse; distributed tax forms; conducted story hours; and, in general 
conducted its business without fanfare.

Recreation Department 



The Wilmington Recreation Department continued in 1985 to make life a bit more "FUN" for the people of 
Wilmington. 

Although our department is relatively small, with only one full-time employee, it represents the second 
largest industry in the nation. In fact, Americans spend about 12 percent of their personal income on 
recreation. 

The Recreation Commission and Director keep in mind the following departmental objectives as they plan and 
conduct recreation programs throughout the year: 

To provide opportunities for self expression. 
To develop a sense of personal worth. 

To provide activities that allow for personal achievement and accomplishment, 
to provide activities that are fun and enjoyable. 

To provide physical activities which are new and different, offering a certain amount of challenge to 
participants. 

To teach skills in various activities that will have carry-over value in later life. 

To provide a healthful and diversified program of recreation activities in an attempt to meet the needs 
and interests of the people being served. 

Our total funding comes from a variety of sources. User fees and donations heavily supplement the town 
funded budget which was decimated by the effects of Prop. 2 1/2 a few years ago. Volunteers still play a 
key role in providing two dollars worth of service for every dollar spent. We receive much help from local 
clubs and organizations. Some of these invaluable contributors are: Rotary, Kiwanis Club, Lions Club, 
Police Association, Town Employees Association, Arts Council, Woburn Street PAC, Sons of Italy, Elks, Camp 
40 Acres, Special Needs PAC, Custodial Union, Chamber of Commerce and Knights of Columbus. Coupled with the 
support we get from the above is the assistance given from such civic minded businesses as: Sweetheart 
Plastics, Ski Haus, Elia's, Compugraphic , Massbank for Savings, Charles River, F § R Auto Supply, Aamco 
Transmissions, Rocco's , Dunkin Donuts, Town Crier, McDonalds, Pepsi Cola, Realty World, Analog, Koch 
Membrane, Polaroid and Silver Lake Pharmacy. 

The Recreation Department is involved, in varying degrees, with many recreation oriented projects and 
groups. In this nature we serve as a quasi-consulting agency. 

We also loan equipment to groups of all types for various functions. 

Our basic programs are: Santa's Workshop, Horribles Parade, Special Kids Christmas Party, Christmas 
Shopping in New York City, an overnight trip to New York City, Basketball League, Basketball Clinics, 
Rotary /Rec Shoot-Out, Mens' Basketball, Mens' Gym, Swimming Lessons, Swim-A-Cross, CPR, First Aid, Ski 
Trips, Ski Lessons, Punt Pass S Kick Contest, Baton, Gymnastics, Ladies Fitness, Cinema Discounts, Florida 
Discounts, other commercial recreation enterprise discount coupons, Sesame Street Live at the Boston Garden, 
Basketball Hall of Fame trip, Flag Football, Special Needs Gym Program, Boat Cruise to Provincetown, T-Ball, 
Break-dancing, Partnership in Health (with the Regional Health Center), much preparation for a group trip to 
Disney World, Easter Egg Hunts, Wild Turkey Race for the Community Fund, Circus Trip to Boston Garden, 
Bruins Tickets, Fall Foliage Trip to Fryeberg Fair in Maine, Discount Shopping Spree to Freeport, Maine, 
Playground, Tiny Tots, Special Needs Day Camp, Public Beach Supervision, Canoe Rental, Craine's Beach Day, 
Teen Trips to Hampton Beach, Tennis Lessons, Concerts on the Common, Red Sox Trips, Sport Clinics, Fishing 
Derby, Self Defense, Memorial Races, Co-ed Volleyball, Disney on Ice Trip, Cross Country Ski Clinic. 

Other groups that offer leisure type programs in Wilmington are: Little League, Pony League, Youth Hockey, 
Figure Skating Club, Mens' Softball, Square Dancing, Wilmington Wheelmen, Youth Soccer, Spotlighers, Tennis 
Club, July 4th Committee, Community Schools, Council on Aging, Council for the Arts, Scouts and the BMX Bike 
Club. Schools and churches round out the active recreation picture.

There is a severe lack of commercial recreation facilities in Wilmington such as bowling centers and movie 
theatres. The town also lacks youth serving agencies such as YMCA's, YWCA's, plus Boys and Girls Clubs. 
This void stresses the importance for town support of various leisure oriented programs. 

Wilmington does have many fine natural water bodies where outdoor activities may be pursued. Silver Lake is 
our most important such asset offering a variety of aquatic sports from swimming, canoeing and sailing to 
skating and fishing in the winter months. The Town Park hill provides an excellent area for sledding during 
the long winter. The large number of conservation and water department lands provide an extremely healthful 
environment for man and animal alike. These protected properties allow for passive recreation such as 
nature study or bird watching. 

Camp 40 Acres is used by various youth and scouting groups and is a semi-private wooded facility. The Town 
Forest, Town Park, Common with Gazebo, School Playgrounds and an abundance of tennis courts - many with 
lights are available to all. 

The outdoor recreation area at Glen Road, Town Hall has been turned over to the Recreation Commission. The 
Commission in turn quickly improved the facility through a generous donation by Rotary and the invaluable 
help of volunteers and the Department of Public Works. New and modern playground equipment was installed in 
1985. School grounds also are being improved steadily throughout the Town. A memorial "play area" in 
memory of Jason Stephenson is being planned for within the Rotary Park confines. 

The Recreation Director and Commission thank those many individuals and groups who help produce a final 
recreation product which is a model to many surrounding communities. 



Veterans' Agent 



Veterans' Services is governed by the General Laws of Massachusetts, Chapter 115 as amended with strict 
compliance to this Chapter, the rules and policies of which govern the disbursement of aid. 

Benefits are for the needy veteran and his immediate family who have been subject to unforeseen needs. 
Final approval of benefits comes from the Commissioner of Veterans' Services, Boston, MA. 

The balance of the first six months of 1985 from previous appropriation was $721.27, total available funds 
beginning July 1, 1985 was $13,000, total expanded for aid to veterans and their families for the entire 
year was $10,316.83. 

This department deals continuously with new and changing benefits and/or laws pertaining to Social Security, 
V.A. Disabilities, pension, compensations and G.I. Education or on the job training; plus, aiding applicants 
for S.S.I., unemployment due to strikes, shut downs and lack of work always has an impact on expenditures. 
Case load varies from time to time. 

The appropriation for 1985 and six months of 1986 was $13,000 as voted at the Annual Town Meeting, a balance 
of $10,439.43 forwarded for the first six months of 1986.

Council on Aging 



The year 1985 was a very difficult yet rewarding year for the Council on Aging. Reaching our goal of 
renovating the Buzzell School into a Senior Citizen Center and meeting the needs of the elderly was 
accomplished through the work of the Council on Aging. 

Federal statistics reveal the American workers are leaving the work force for early retirement at an 
alarming rate. The council was very much aware of this, as many young seniors looked to the Center for 
assistance or social involvment through programs. This increase made the renovation project a must for 1985 

All programs and services are implemented and organized by the coordinator. They are oriented to help the 
elderly person maintain their independence by remaining mentally and physically healthy. Programs available 
to the elderly are: therapeutic exercise, health clinics, hot lunch, transportation, dance lessons, 
swimming classes, walking, bowling, golf, arts and crafts, bi-monthly whist parties, monthly whist parties, 
monthly therapeutic socials, legal services, fuel assistance, homemaking, visiting nurse, telephone 
reassurance calls, widowed -to-widowed, income tax, friendly visitors, medical supplies, house sitting (for 
peers attending a wake or funeral), surplus commodities distribution, holiday shut-in lunch program, donated 
clothes program, counseling, and newspaper informational column. 

In the year 1985 - the minibus traveled 20,061 miles and transported 10,180 elders to medical appointments, 
hot lunch site and other elderly related travel, an increase of 1,528 miles and 1,457 transported; meals on 
wheels - 15,680 meals were delivered to shut ins, and 7,823 were served at the lunch site, an increase of 
5,331 delivered and 3,277 served; peer support - 13,128 volunteer hours were donated to seniors in need of 
food and medicine, telephone reassurance calls, friendly visitors, widowed -to-widowed help, hospital and 
nursing visitors, transporation, Christmas distribution, packing 40,000 gifts for 10,000 low-income children 
for WRKO's Christmas distribution, an increase of 4,105 volunteer hours; Senior Center - 22,740 seniors 
visited the Center, seeking help, counseling and socialization involvement through activity programs, an 
increase of 2,333. 

Funding received for programs and services was from the taxpayers and the following agencies: 

$115,500 - Fuel Assistance Program (fuel, oil burner cleaned and repaired) 
116,600 - Minuteman Homecare (homemakers , therapist, chore workers and daycare) 
11,500 - Cambridge/Somerville Elder Legal Services (legal help) 
14,107 - Department of Elder Affairs (grants used in the Buzzell renovation) 
15,700 - Stoneham Visiting Nurse Association (in-home nursing care for illness) 
9,750 - Mystic Valley Mental Health (treatment of mental conditions) 

The Council on Aging is very grateful for the help received in meeting the needs of the elderly from: Mike 
Demoulas, Sweetheart Plastic Company, Diamond Crystal Salt Company, Woburn District Court, Yum Yum Shop, 
American Legion Post 136, Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs, Tewksbury /Wilmington Elks, Employee's of Compugraphic, 
Students of the High School and Wildwood School and Ron Wybert, Plate Escape. 

A special thanks this year to all our benefactors who through their donations and help made the Wilmington 
Seniors dream of having their own Senior Center a reality in 1985: the taxpayers, Reginald S. Stapczynski, 
Town Manager, Roy P. McClanahan, Robert Palmer, Bobby N. Stewart, the Shawsheen Valley Technical High 
School, Hampshire Press, Carpenter's Union #41 f, 595, Painter's Union #35, General Electric Company, Carpet 
World, Representative James Miceli who spent countless hours seeking thousands of dollars in donated labor 
and material, allowing the Council to reach our goal, and to all the private citizens and seniors who have 
given their support and money to complete the renovation project.

Conservation Commission 



The Wilmington Conservation Commission meets the first and third Wednesday of every month at the Town Hall. 
In its 22nd year of service to the town the Conservation Commission's busy schedule included 25 regular 
meetings, 38 Wetland Protection Act hearings, and over 1,075 on-site inspections. Members have attended 
various conferences with the Department of Environmental Quality Engineering in Boston and Woburn and 
numerous on-site inspections with DEQE, Army Corp of Engineers and Massachusetts Environmental Protection 
Act officials. Much of the Commission's time is spent on Wetlands Protection Act hearings, consultations 
and on-site review with prospective applicants at their request, and as a means of explaining wetland 
considerations. 

In order to encourage cooperation and maintain communication on projects of mutual concern, members attend 
many meetings of other boards. On a regional basis, participation and membership in a number of 
environmentally related organizations, such as, Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions, 
Environmental Lobby of Massachusetts, Conservation Law Foundation, Ipswich River Watershed, Mystic River 
Watershed, all provide valuable information and opportunities for exchange of ideas and sources of help, 
which enables the Commission to carry out its responsibilities more effectively. 

The Wetlands Protection Act Regulations under Mass. G. L. Chapter 131, section 40, require increased 
responsibility on the applicants' engineer to present complete and accurate site designs to satisfy all 
criteria and calculations set forth. It is the Commission's responsibility to be technically aware in 
evaluating scientific evidence presented by an applicant in order to apply the legal presumptions set forth 
in the regulations. It is quite clear, both for the applicant and the Conservation Commission that 
improperly designed projects and projects that do not conform to the new regulations, will be "denied." 

The Commission would like to thank Representative James Miceli for his successful endeavor in the transfer 
of 154 + acres of town-owned land, off Ballardvale Street, to the care and custody of the Conservation 
Commission this past year. 

Residents may also donate land to the town, specifying its use for conservation and thus be assured that the 
land will remain in its natural state, thereby receiving certain tax benefits as a result of their gift. 

The Commission wishes to acknowledge the addition of our newest member, Robert LaVita. 

The Conservation Commission appreciates the continuing support and cooperation of the citizens of 
Wilmington, boards, town officials and employees in making our Commission a success.

Carter Lecture Fund 



The Carter Lecture Fund Committee presented its 1985 program, "THE GREAT WORLD CRUISE OF THE QUEEN ELIZABETH 
2." on May 21, 1985, with Mr. Doug Jones. 

Mr. Jones, traveler and lecturer, has produced eight feature travel films, and his lecture season includes 
over two hundred appearances annually. He has appeared on virtually every major auditorium lecture series 
in the United States and Canada including the National Geographic Society series at Constitutional Hall in 
Washington D.C. The International Platform Association awarded him the "Film Lecturer of the Year Award" 
for his outstanding work in the field of travelogue production. 

In the new 90-minute, feature-length travelogue, 24 ports of call are visited; and all, by way of the 
67,000-ton, 13-story Queen Elizabeth 2 -- flagship of the Cunard Line and unquestionably the greatest ocean 
liner afloat. Some of the ports of call include such places as Barbados, Brazil, fabulous Rio, mysterious 
India, dazzling Singapore, exotic Bangkok, Hong Kong, Japan, Honolulu, Acapulco, Curacao, and the Panama 
Canal . 

This film explores the people and places of the world, as well as behind-the-scenes of a great, majestic 
ship. The experience is as thrilling as the very world itself. It is the epitome of everyone's travel 
dreams. 



Historical Commission 



The Historical Commission is pleased to report that the Harnden Tavern had gutters and the two back porches 
replaced. Both the tavern and the carriage house have been painted. 

Hardware on the inside doors was stripped to the shiny basic brass metal. 

We regret that before the new tenants moved in, four windows and frames were vandalized. Puddle glass was 
hard to find but Jim Surette, Jr., the new tenant, did an excellent job in replacing them. He also made and 
stationed the metal carriage door trolley for an easy sliding door. 

Leo Gittzus, Bernard McMahon and Robert Wright were appointed to the commission. 

Friends of the Harnden Tavern held successful strawberry and Apple Festivals, and also a Christmas Social in 
December. 

It is believed that original items of the tavern period are so expensive, it may be necessary to buy or 
accept good reproductions. 

The tavern received a lantern formerly used at the North Wilmington Fire Department located at the Harriman 
Tannery, some interesting paintings, books, a fire screen, and kitchen items. 

It has been voted that the tavern will now be opened from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon on the 
first Sunday of each month of the year. The regular meeting of the Historical Commission is held at 7:30 
p.m. the second Tuesday of the month at the Harnden Tavern. The public is invited.

Council for the Arts 



During 1985 the activities of the Wilmington Council for the Arts were supported once again by $5,000 in 
funds generated by the Massachusetts Arts Lottery Game "Megabucks". With Arts Lottery Grants made in two 
granting cycles each year the local Council is able to encourage and support many worthwhile Arts and 
Humanities projects. 

Grants were awarded this year to the Silver Lake Spotlighters, now of Woburn, for their Youth Theatre 
Workshop, to Hammond Castle Museum in Gloucester and to the Merrimack Lyric Opera Company of Lowell. 

The Council takes pride in sponsoring a variety of arts programs within the Town of Wilmington. The 
Performing and Fine Arts Department of Wilmington High School received funding for a theatrical production, 
for the purchase of a portable display case for ceramics and jewelry and for a set of choral risers. 

For the North Intermediate School the Council partially funded a multi-disciplined production of "North 
Meets South" and "An Evening wth LaTuna", a strolling minstral group from Cadis, Spain. 

The Reading based "Creative Arts for Kids" program implemented a pilot project at the Woburn Street School 
during the fall with partial funding and the blessing of the Arts Council, which still clings to the hope of 
creating a Centre for the Arts at the Old Town Hall. If such a venture could become a reality, then arts 
and music lessons and gallery space would become regularly available to artists of all ages in the community. 

The Council itself received a grant with which it was able to bring a talented pair, "The Music Makers" of 
Ashburnham, to Wilmington in March for a program of unusual Irish folk-music. This was presented at the 
Memorial Library free of charge to an enthusiastic audience. 

Several scholarships are made available each spring to Wilmington young people who have chosen to major in 
the Arts at an accredited art or music school or college. Receiving grants in 1985 were Stephanie Dionne 
and John Maguire. 

On July 6th the Council sponsored its 5th Annual Art Exhibit and Crafts Fair on Wilmington Common under a 
canopy of yellow and white. Adding to everyone's pleasure was a superlative performance by the "Lancaster 
Brass Quintet". This talented group played a varied program of classical and popular musical favorites from 
the Gazebo. Ribbons for art-work in several catagories were awarded after being judged by a panel of three 
professional artists from other towns. Two dozen craftspeople displayed their work for sale - a larger 
number than in any previous year. 

The loss of our past Chairman and good friend, John D. Brooks, prompted the Council to take appropriate 
actions. Beginning in 1986 an award ribbon, "The John D. Brooks Memorial Award for Excellence in the Arts", 
will be presented to a Wilmington artist of exceptional talent at the Council's Annual Art Exhibition. 

In mid-July the Council provided funds to help the Recreation Department bring a performance by the "Little 
Red Wagon/Caravan", a travelling theatre group from the University of New Hampshire, to the Glen Road 
Playground. 

Twenty-six paintings by local artists were displayed in October at the opening of new offices for the 
Wilmington Family Counseling Services, Inc. at Presidential Park. The Open House - Art Exhibit was 
co-sponsored by the Arts Council and the Wilmington Womens Club. 

Two new Council members, Evelyn Choate and Joanne Cuoco were appointed in December. Anyone interested in 
becoming a member of the Council and/or in helping with its many interesting on-going projects should 
contact the Town Manager, the Board of Selectmen or Arts Council. New members are always welcome. 

Artists and arts oriented organizations in the Community are urged to avail themselves of Arts Lottery 
Grants assistance, a unique funding opportunity. Grant applications are available at Memorial Library and 
the Town Hall where they are submitted to the Arts Council for review each spring and fall.

Fourth of July Committee 



1985 was the Fifth Anniversary of the week-long celebration commemorating the Fourth of July holidays 
appropriately named "Fun on the Fourth." The program was created upon request of the Wilmington residents, 
who expressed a desire for a program that would bring the town together for some good, old-fashioned 
activities with a holiday spirit. The success of the program is due to the countless hours of volunteer 
participation and community involvement. It's popularity has brought back former residents to be with their 
old friends. 

Large numbers of participants became commonplace, as the Rotary Club, Sons of Italy, Knights of Columbus, 
Kiwanis, and Lions Clubs served their specialties to over 400 people on the common on their respective 
special nights. Breakfast was also popular, as an average of over 500 townsfolk enjoyed the offerings of 
the Minutemen, Knights of Columbus, or the newly-formed Marine Corp League. 

Participation reached an all-time high when different town groups entered into the ten different co-ed 
athletic events to compete for small prizes and large enjoyment. New events this year included halfball or 
stickball, women's 2-mile walk, badminton, and croquet. 

Concerts on the gazebo, arts/crafts tables, an art exhibit including chamber music, athletic games for the 
children, Little Red Wagon puppet show, nightly carnival, or just people watching filled activity schedules 
of our town family. 

This year's highlight for those who watched the fireworks extravaganza from the Common was the concert by 
the Air Force Band, with its finale starting the fireworks display. 

The Committee also takes pride in its involvement with the Council of Churches in providing the lighting of 
the Common at Christmastime and also sharing our Fourth of July facilities with over 20 different Wilmington 
organizations so they may conduct their meetings there free of cost. 

We look forward to another big year in 1986 and invite all townspeople to add their input at one of our 
meetings at the fourth of July Headquarters on the first Wednesday of each month. Or, be with us when we 
kick off the year with our annual fundraising luncheon on the first Wednesday in June at the Knights of 
Columbus Hall.

Housing Authority 



The year 1985 started with the appointment of the Wilmington Housing Authority's new Executive Director, 
Lillian Buckley, who joined the new housing efforts already being made by Board Chairman Kevin McMillan, 
Vice Chairman William Strob, Secretary Warren Newhouse, Treasurer Elaine Hachey, and Assistant Treasurer Dan 
Gillis. 

During this time, architects were interviewed and hired for two new developments and also for two 
modernization programs. New elderly housing and family housing developments were pushed along successfully 
into the Schematic Design phase, which will be followed by the final planning and construction phase in mid 
1986. 

A Solar Energy grant of $80,000 applied for and received in 1985, will be used for a passive solar heating 
system in the new elderly housing. A glass-enclosed gallery will enable tenants to move freely between 
units, protected from harsh weather. 

Tighter tenant selection procedures and management policies are now in place as per site visits and 
guidelines set down by the Executive Office of Communities and Development. Close monitoring of operating 
costs plus aggressive pursuit of modernization funds has resulted in a major accomplishment for the Housing 
Authority in 1985 - the attainment of maximum operating reserves and a new capital reserve. 

Aggressive pursuit of modernization funds also resulted in the replacement of broken underground pipes and 
installation of a totally new and more efficient hot water heating system. Designs for the new sewer line 
are complete, construction to start in mid 1986. 



Permanent Building Committee 



In accordance with the Town Meeting vote of authorization, the Permanent Building Committee had construction 
drawings prepared for the addition and renovation work at the High School. Bids were received on July 23, 
1985 and the contract was awarded to Sciaba Construction Corporation of Readville, Massachusetts for 
$5,116,050.00; this amount was within one percent of the architects estimate. 

Work commenced at the site during late summer and by the end of the year the art and library addition was 
under roof and footings and foundations for the other additions were in place. The construction schedule 
for the project is as was stated during the 1984 Town Meeting presentation - available for student occupancy 
at the beginning of school in the Fall of 1986. 

The Permanent Building Committee met twice a month during the past year to review the constractors 
requisitions, and construction schedule.

WATER 



The major activity was the initiation of the North Wilmington Water Treatment Plant. The Annual Town Meeting 
approved $6.4 million dollars for the construction of a treatment facility for the Salem Street well, Barrows 
wellfield and the Brown's Crossing wellfield. The plant will be built on the site of the Barrows Pumping 
Station. The treatment process will be similar to the Butter's Row Treatment Plant. Design of the facility 
was started by Weston and Sampson, Engineers. 

Due to a reduction in pumping capacity, it was necessary to clean and redevelop three wells. 
Water was supplied to Tewksbury on an emergency basis for one month. 

The Board was represented on a Regional Planning Group with Reading and North Reading. This group will be 
working jointly to protect the groundwater, which is so important to all three towns. 

Arthur Smith worked with the Task Force that established new regulations regarding underground storage tanks 
designed to protect the groundwater. 



The procedure for establishing a monitoring system of industrial discharges to the sewer was initiated. This 
program will be implemented in 1986 and is designed to protect the sewer pipes from corrosive liquids that 
can destroy them. Because of the deterioration of a portion of the Eames Street sewer it was necessary to 
reconstruct the portion under the railroad. The work was financed by a court settlement against the alleged 
polluter. 

The Board worked with the Wilmington Housing Authority on the design of the sewer on Cedar Street to service 
the expansion of the Housing for the Elderly on Deming Way. 

The construction of the Ballardvale Street sewer began, financed by a consortium of firms in the area. 
The Board held discussions with firms interested in extending the sewer on Woburn Street. 

Our assessment from the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MDC) increased by 78%. Additional increases 
can be expected.

Metropolitan Area Planning Council 



Wilmington is a member of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) , comprising 101 communities in the 
metropolitan Boston area. The MAPC makes regional plans and policies, while also providing technical 
assistance to member communities. MAPC provided the following: 

1. Development of regional plans, such as the Overall Economic Development Program and the 
Transportation Improvement Program, which were required to maintain eligibility for federal funds in 
these areas. 

2. Provide zoning reviews and comments to assist communities in identifying and modifying development 
projects to minimize adverse impacts and to promote cost effectiveness. 

3. Held several workshops covering economic development, water quality and local zoning issues and 
developed numerous publications which directly benefit the Town of Wilmington. 



Redevelopment Authority 



1985 saw no personnel changes on the Wilmington Redeveloment Authority with incumbent, C. Nicki Johnson, 
being re-appointed by Governor Michael S. Dukakis to a five-year term, Jay Donovan, Chairman; Carl Backman, 
Jr., Vice Chairman; C. Nicki Johnson, Secretary; Vaughn Surprenant, Treasurer; and Sidney Kaizer, Assistant 
Treasurer. 

During the year, the final parcel of land was developed by Howland Development Company and office tenants 
were being identified for the building. The Redevelopment Authority transferred its "buffer zone" to the 
Conservation Commission via the Board of Selectmen. At the April Town Meeting, the Redevelopment Authority 
was authorized, by unanimous vote, to extend its aithority to Routes 38 and 129 and the Town Center, so as 
to coordinate local activities in relation to the proposed Route 129 Traffic Improvements Project. Since 
the April meeting, the Redevelopment Authority has met with representatives of the Massachusetts Department 
of Public Works, local officials and persons affected by the proposed project. 

At the end of 1985, there were seven businesses operating in Jewel Park employing a total of 539 people. 
Assessed value of the park is $8,413,800, and the annual tax revenue to the Town of Wilmington totals 
$179,200.

School Department 



We are pleased to submit the Annual Report of the activities of the Wilmington Public Schools for the year 
1985. A review of the year's activities brings out the following highlights: 

Basic Skills Improvement Program 

In the Spring of 1985 students in grades 3 and 6 were administered the Iowa Test of Basic Skills to assess 
their basic skills in reading, mathematics, and language arts, provide diagnostic information, and to 
identify students not achieving minimal competency levels. In grade 8 students were assessed in reading, 
mathematics and writing to insure that minimal competency levels were achieved. In grades 3, 5, and 7 a 
listening skills assessment was undertaken to identify students needing improvement in this area. Skills in 
capitalization, punctuation, grammar and usage were also tested in grades 3, 6, and 8 as part of the total 
testing program. Students not achieving minimal competency in one or all of the areas tested are provided 
with remediation programs until competency can be demonstrated. 

Physical Education and Athletics 

The Physical Education Department continued to serve all students (K-12) as well as providing an adaptive 
program for students with special needs. The program sponsors a physical education "Mile Club" to encourage 
physical fitness in grades 5 through 8. 

The health program in grades 7 and 8, with the cooperation of the Science Department, emphasized the 
importance of drug-alcohol education. 

The Physical Education Department cited several students for outstanding achievement in physical education: 

Class of 1985 Denise Quinn Greg Hooper 

Class of 1986 Julie L'Esperance Eric Torrell 

Class of 1987 Shelia MacDonald Charles Boudreau 

Class of 1988 Michelle Carbone Paul DiFronzo

Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational 
Technical School 



rhe School Committee of the Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School district herewith 
presents its report for the calendar year 1985. The Shawsheen Valley District is presently comprised of 
five towns, which include Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, Tewksbury, and Wilmington. 

The Regional Vocational School Committee consists of ten members, with each of the five towns in the 
district electing two members respectively, for a three year term. The only change to occur in the 
Committee ranks last year was the election of Kevin John Sowyrda of Wilmington. The entire membership of 
the Committee is as follows: 



Bedford 

Anthony R. Mazzone, Chairman 
Joseph L. Rogers 



Billerica 

Kenneth L. Buffum, Secretary/Treasurer 
Bernard Hoar 



Burlington 
John P. Miller, Chairman 
Francis McLaughlin 



Tewksbury 
J. Peter Downing, Vice Chairman 
Richard E. Griffin 



Wilmington 
Kevin J. Sowyrda, Legislative Liaison 
Laurence Juergens 



Ibe operation of the school is in accordance with the established guidelines instituted by the Department of 
Education, Division of Occupational Education which requires that 50% of the student's time be spent in 
academic classrooms and the remainder in a shop area. In the academic area, students have an eight-period 
iay without study periods, which enables them to equate their studies to that of the local high school. 



Facility and Programs 



rhe Regional Vocational Technical High School is housed in a modern building located in Billerica with 
60,000 square feet which includes 21 skill training programs, 40 classrooms, a gymnasium, swimming pool, 

ind athletic facilities for a number of different sports. Upon completion of an exploratory program during 
heir freshman year, students choose a field of concentration in a particular vocational/technical area. 

rhey are as follows: 



Ur Conditioning § Refrigeration 

aito Body 

automotive 

Susiness Technology 
arpentry 

hemical Laboratory Technician 

osmetology 

ulinary

iesel and Heavy Equipment 

lectrical 



Electronics 
Graphic Arts 
Health Occupations 
Machine Technology 
Maintenance Mechanics 
Masonry 

Metal Fabrication and Welding 
Plumbing and Heating 
Technical Drafting 
Technical Illustrating 
and Commercial Art 



Placement 



11 Shawsheen Tech graduates wishing to enter employment upon graduation were placed in positions directly 
elating to their field of training. 1985 once again reflected our excellent placement record, whereby the 
eputation of the school has been enhanced by providing the type of vocational/technical training that both 
ndustry and business are expecting. The large number of diversified industry within the Route 128 area 
ontinues to act as a magnet for our placement program. We continue to experience a situation where there 
re not sufficient graduates to fill all the job vacancies.

Major Projects 

The 1984-85 house building project was an eight-room garrison house constructed in Burlington. The 1985-86 
project will be constructed in Tewksbury, and the owners have chosen a garrison type home. The most 
significant project of 1985 has been the renovation of the Buzzell School in Wilmington for use as the new 
Senior Citizen Center. Shawsheen Tech students from the areas of carpentry, plumbing, and electrical have 
contributed a tremendous amount of work to a project which is most worthwhile. The Committee estimates that j 
the free labor provided by Shawsheen Tech students can be estimated at over $30,000. We would, at this 
time, recognize the diligent efforts of our Technical Coordinator, Mr. Anthony Bazzinotti, and carpentry 
instructor, Henry Bergman, in relation to the Buzzell School Renovation Project. 

Policy 

The principal responsibility of the Committee is to foster the development of policies for the school. A 
major accomplishment in this area was the evaluation of Shawsheen Tech's disciplinary policies which 
culminated in the appointment of a full-time school disciplinarian. Mr. John Bowen, physical education lead 
teacher, has been appointed to this position, where his full-time responsibility shall be student 
discipline. Subsequently, the disciplinarian and the Committee have commenced an evaluation of the student 
handbook, in reference to alcohol and drug abuse policy, and curriculum. We have taken a very close look at 
the policies establishd at Wilmington High School in this area and will consider adopting many of those 
policies at Shawsheen Tech. 

Enrollment Statistics 

In accordance with the agreement between the five towns, the assessment of costs is based on the percentage 
of enrollment. The enrollment as of October 1, 1985 is as follows: 

Town Number of Students 



Bedford 56 

Billerica 604 

Burlington 186 

Tewksbury 439 

Wilmington 273 

Total Enrollment as of 10/1/85 is 1,558. 

Special Needs 

The purpose of the Special Education Program is to afford each student an opportunity to achieve maximal 
independence. This objective is addressed through the preparation of each student for profitable employment 
in a vocational or technical career. The goal of economic self-sufficiency is recognized as the vital 
objective for the Special Needs student at Shawsheen Tech. The program seeks to provide each special needs 
students with a well-structured, vocational-skilled program designed to develop the necessary skills 
required in the competitive labor market. The following services are available for students with special 
needs: Resource Rooms for students with mild special needs, Learning Resource Center for students with 
specific learning disabilities, individual Vocational Educational Program for students with moderate special 
needs, and Speech and Language therapy. The special needs population at Shawsheen Tech by district towns 
is: Billerica-96, Bedford-35, Burlington-74, Tewksbury- 52 , and Wilmington-52 for a total of 303 special 
needs students. 

Accreditation 

Since January of 1985 the staff at Shawsheen Tech has been involved in self -evaluation activities in 
preparation for the on-site accreditation visit to be conducted by the New England Association of Schools 
and Colleges. The visit is scheduled to take place on March 25 through 27 and will provide for an intensive 
evaluation of the vocational and academic programs at the school. After the three day on site visit, an 
extensive report assessing school programs, curriculum, staff, school facilities, and community support will 
be prepared by the visiting team members. This report will be available for dissemination to the public in 
late spring.

The Budget 



Funding for the Regional Vocational School comes in part from the assessments on the five district member 
towns and in part from the Commonwealth. A considerable obstacle for the Committee has been the situation 
concerning state aid to our school. Following is a graph indicating the state aid received by the regional 
vocational school as compared with the state aid received by the municipalities. This clearly indicates our 
budgetary difficulties. It is the position of the Committee that the Commonwealth evaluate educational aid 
and move to the direction of an equal educational aid policy. Presently, a regional vocational school such 
as Lowell Tech receives significantly greater funds than Shawsheen Tech due to the demographic makeup of 
Lowell as compared to Shawsheen Valley. An equal educational aid policy would not be influenced by such 
factors as the number of AFDC students in a particular school system, as is the present formula.

On November 28th, George Morrissey, a Shawsheen Tech staff member since 1970, passed away. His many years 

of service and committment to the Shawsheen Valley community are greatly appreciated by the School Committee. 

The Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational School Committee thanks all of the administrators, staff, and 
parents for their many significant contributions in 1985.

A quorum being present at 8:00 p.m. the Moderator asked for the indulgence of the voters to allow for 
arrangements to be made to help seat the voters still coming in, after a few minutes the moderator opened 
the meeting with the pledge of allegiance to the Flag after which he started to read the Warrant and was 
interrupted by the Town Manager moving that we suspend the reading of the Warrant and take each article as 
drawn, this motion was seconded and the Moderator, still trying to make allowances for the overcrowded 
conditions accepted a motion from the floor to adjourn the meeting to a later date and place where all could 
be seated. This motion was seconded but overwhelmingly defeated by a voice vote. At which time the 
Moderator explained the hazzards and asked that all in attendance be quiet so as to continue with as little 
delay as possible. 

Article 7: (Drawn as #1) Motion by James Stewart, "I move that the Town vote to amend the Zoning By-Law and 
Zoning Map of the Town of Wilmington by voting to rezone from Neighborhood Business (NB) and Residence 10 
(R-10) to Residence 60 (R-60) a parcel of land bound and described as follows: 

Easterly by the centerline of Main Street 410 feet; Southerly across Main Street and by land of 

Julian, Burpee, Hurley and Williams in three courses 183 feet, 39.88 feet and 66 feet; 

Northwesterly generally by Silver Lake to the sideline of Main Street 475 feet; 

Northerly across Main Street to the centerline of Main Street 25 feet. 

The above motion was seconded and the Finance Committee recommended approval as did the Planning Board. 
Their was very little discussion due to the conditions prevailing and a voice vote was taken with it being 

unanimously so voted. 

Article :3 (Drawn as #2) Motion by Joseph Courtney, read the same as the original article with the addition 
at the end of the article of 

"Pursuant to Section 7.3.4 of the Zoning By-Law, this motion incorporates by reference (1) the 
written proposal for the development of condominium units within the above-described site by Northeastern 
Development Corporation which was filed with the Planning Board on January 8, 1985; (2) the above described

architectural plans entitled "Proposed Six Unit Condominiums for Northeastern Development Corp." and 
"Proposed Four Unit Condominiums for Northeastern Development Corp." prepared by Albert Finn, each set of 
plans containing four sheets. Said written proposal and plans limit the maximum number of development units 
to 94 townhouse units with an aggregate total of 188 of bedrooms/dens to be constructed on the site."

Planning Board recommended approval with these recommendations "The Planning Board finds that the Planned 
Residential Development shown and described on the plan entitled: "Conceptual Site Plan, White Pine Crossing 
Townhouse Development, Wilmington, Mass. dated July 24, 1985", showing a maximum of 94 two bedroom units: 
is consistent with the purposes of subsection 7.1 of the zoning by-law and does encourage the preservation 
of significant land and water resources; does contain a mix of residential, open spaces, and other uses 
sufficiently advantageous to the Town to render it appropriate to depart from the requirements of the zoning 
by-law otherwise applicable to the land; and does include sufficient data in the applicant's presentation to 
the Town Meeting to give reasonable assurance that the development will conform to all the Planned 
Residential Development Stantards."

motion was made to move the question, seconded and so voted. At this time Mr. Courtney summarized and the 
moderator informed the voters that a 2/3rds vote was needed. Because of the way the gym was set up with the

just raise their hand for safety reasons. Seven tellers came forward and the count was taken YES 174 NO

deemed necessary by the Fire Chief. However, all tanks must be tested at the owner's expense 
during the 20th year after installation. 

Section 7: Procedure in Case of Spill or Leak (also, see Appendix A) 

7.1 - Leak Reporting 

Any owner /opera tor who is aware of a spill, abnormal loss of product stored 
underground, or abnormal gains of water in a tank, shall report such spill, loss or gain 
immediately to the Fire Chief. The Fire Chief shall be responsible for other notification, as 
required by law and outlined in Appendix A. 

7.2 - Equipment Replacement /Removal 

(a) After a leak is confirmed, underground tanks (fittings and piping) shall be emptied 
immediately, and removed or repaired forthwith, under the direction of the Fire Chief. 

(b) A leaking tank that is twenty years old or older or that falls under 4.5 that does not comply 
with the design standards in section 5.1 (b) shall be removed and may not be repaired. A permit 
for its removal must be obtained in accordance with M.G.L. Ch. 148, s. 38A. 

(c) A leaking tank that is proven to be, by the owner or operator, less than twenty years old 
shall be repaired or removed. If the tank operator can show to the satisfaction of the Fire Chief 
that (in the case of steel tanks) the leak was from internal corrosion, and that the tank can be 
repaired so as not to pose a continuing threat to the soils and waters of the commonwealth, 
considering at a minimum the corrosivity of the soil; tank age and external condition; techniques 
to be used for the repair; and the location of the tank, then the tank may be repaired. Operators 
of leaking FRP tanks must demonstrate to the Fire Chief that the tank can be repaired according to 
manufacturer's instructions. Operators who do not meet these requirements shall remove the tank. 

(d) If it is necessary to replace an underground steel tank that has developed a corrosion- induced 
leak, all other steel tanks at the facility of the same age or older, must be tested in accordance 
wth section 6.2 of this bylaw within 30 days of leak verification. 

Section 8: Administration 

8.1 - Board of Selectmen is chief licensing authority. 

8.2 - The provisions of this bylaw shall be administered by the Fire Chief. 

8.3 - Variances from the specific requirements of this bylaw may be authorized by the chief licensing 

authority after notice and a public hearing. 

8.4 - Licenses issued in accordance with M.G.L. Ch. 148 s. 13 for underground tanks shall be renewed 

annually. Tank owners shall submit to the Fire Chief and the licensing authority (Board of 
Selectmen) a statement certifying satisfactory leak-detection results over the period of the 
permit (in accordance with s. 6.2 of this bylaw), and inventory verification, at least 30 days 
before the issuance of a permit renewal for the time periods specified herein. Test results 
shall accompany the permit-renewal application. 

8.5 - Fees necessary for the issuance and renewal of permits or licenses shall be set by the Board of 

Selectmen. 

8.6 - The Fire Chief may, at all reasonable times, and upon reasonable notice to the occupant of the 

premises, enter any premises, public or private, for the purpose of investigating, sampling, or 
inspecting any record, condition, equipment, practice, or property relating to activities 
subject to this bylaw, and may at any time and upon reasonable notice to the occupant of the 
premises enter such premises for the purpose of protecting the public health or safety, or to 
prevent damage to the environment. 

8.7 - Any operator who violates any provision of this bylaw shall be subject to a fine of three 

hundred dollars for each offense. Each day during which such violation continues shall 
constitute a separate offense. This bylaw may be enforced pursuant to Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 40, 
sec. 21D, as amended, by a local police officer or any other officer having police powers. Upon 
request of the Board of Health and the Board of Selectmen, Town Counsel shall take such legal 
action as may be necessary to enforce this bylaw. 
Section 9: Prohibited Uses 

All materials which require a Material Safety Data Sheet, with the exception of gasoline, diesel 
fuel and fuel oil, will be prohibited from underground storage in the Town of Wilmington accept as 
otherwise approved by the Fire Chief.

APPENDIX A 

FUEL-SPILL CONTINGENCY PLAN: FUEL LEAKAGE OR SPILLS 
When fuel spills, it is important to follow proper procedures to ensure prompt and safe containment and 
cleanup of the material. Chapter 21 of the Massachusetts General Laws, as amended by Chapter 705 of the 
Acts of 1979, gives the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Quality Engineering (DEQE) sole authority 
to order or conduct spill containment and removal in or near any of the waters of the commonwealth. 
Groundwater is included in the definition of "Waters of the Commonwealth." Local officials, therefore, are 
not authorized to clean up the spilled substance but can take steps to contain it, provided that DEQE is 
promptly notified and concurs with the proposed actions. As long as this is done "any person who 
gratuitously renders assistance at the request of a duly authorized officer in removing oil or hazardous 
material from the waters of the commonwealth, or adjoining shorelines, shall not be held liable, 
notwithstanding any other provision of law, for civil damages as a result of any act of omission by him in 
removing such oil or hazardous material, except acts or omissions amounting to gross negligence or willful 
or wanton misconduct." 

The following plan will be implemented in Wilmington: 
Prior to a Spill: 

1. Develop a standard procedure for reporting spills, such as the attached form, and distribute it to 
all concerned town departments, including the Fire Department, Board of Health, Police Department, 
Town Manager, Board of Selectmen, Conservation Commission, and the Hazardous Waste Coordinator. 

2. Equip one or more town departments with oil-absorbent booms to be used to contain the spill. Train 
employees to use the booms. Or, in the alternative, the Town will employ the services of a 
certified hazardous waste clean-up operator. 

3. Measures should be taken to ensure the safe and clean operation of gas stations and other fuel 
dispensers, particularly those in groundwater-recharge areas and watersheds of surface water 
supplies. Applications for construction of new fuel storage facilities should be carefully 
reviewed, and permits should be issued only when compliance with strict safety standards is assured. 

4. Because a fuel spill may involve several communities, determine who should be notified in the event 
of a threat to another community (e.g., Fire Department, Town Manager, etc.). 

When a Spill Occurs: 

5. Contact the local fire department, followed by all applicable town departments and the DEQE. 
Follow the latter' s instruction. 

6. Inspect the site of the spill and note the characteristics of the spilled substance. Do not come 
into contact with the substance or strike a match near the area. 

7. If the spill can be contained, place a row of oil-absorbent boom around it. 

8. Wait for the field representative from the DEQE to arrive, checking the spill periodically. 

ARTICLE 6. To see if the Town will vote to authorize the Board of Selectmen to petition the State 
Legislature to authorize that David L. Axelrod be allowed to take the Civil Service Police Department 
entrance examination for the position of police officer in the Wilmington Police Department notwithstanding 
that he is more than thirty-two years old; or do anything in relation thereto. Article by Petition 

ARTICLE 7. To see if the Town will vote to amend the Zoning By-Law and Zoning Map of the Town of Wilmington 
by voting to rezone from Residence 20 District (R-20) to General Industrial District (GI) that land

Zone line for 1180 feet more or less, west by land of John Lyons etal for 260 feet more or less and 
northerly by land of Forrest H. Chaput etal and land of aforementioned Parsons, for 1058 feet more or 
less, meaning to describe the northerly portion of parcel 16 on Assessors Map 71; 
or do anything in relation thereto. Article by petition

TOWN OF WILMINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS 
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 
June 30, 1985 



1 . Summary of Significant Accounting Policies 

The accounting policies for financial reporting purposes of the Town of Wilmington 
conform to generally accepted accounting principles for local governmental units excep; 
as indicated in Note 2. The following is a summary of the significant accounting 
policies : 

A. Fund Accounting 

The town reports its financial activities in several funds and one account grou.j 
in order to comply with the limitations and restrictions placed on both the 
resources made available to the town and the services provided. The various fu 
are grouped in the financial statements in this report into five generic fund 
types and two broad fund categories as follows: 

GOVERNMENTAL FUNDS 

General Fund - The general fund is the general operating fund of the town. It 
used to account for all financial resources except those required to be account; 
for in another fund. 

Special Revenue Fund - General Revenue Sharing - This special revenue fund is i 
used to account for the proceeds of the State and Local Fiscal Assistance Act a 
their expenditures as prescribed by the Office of Revenue Sharing. 

Special Revenue Funds - Others - This special revenue fund is used to account f 
trie proceeds of specific revenue resources (other than general revenue sharing, 
expendable trust or major capital projects) that are legally restricted to 
expenditures for specific purposes. 

Capital Projects Fund - This fund is used to account for the purchase or 
construction of major capital facilities. 

FIDUCIARY FUNDS 

Trust and Agency Funds - Trust and agency funds are used to account for assets I 
the town in a trustee capacity or as an agent for individuals, private 
organizations, other governments and/or other funds. These include expendable 
trust, non-expendable trust and agency funds. Non-expendable trust funds are 
accounted for in a manner that permits the periodic measurement of revenues 
earned, expenses incurred and/or net income in order to demonstrate maintenance 
capital. Expendable trust funds are accounted for in essentially the same manm 
as governmental funds. Agency funds are custodial in nature (assets equal 
liabilities) and do not involve measurement of results of operations. 

ACCOUNT GROUP 

Long-Term Debt and Liabilities - Long-term liabilities expected to be financed 
from governmental funds are accumulated in the general long-term debt group of 
accounts. This account group is not a fund. It is only concerned with the 
measurement of financial position and, therefore, is not involved with a 
measurement of the results from any operations. 

B. Basis of Accounting 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared principally on the 
modified accrual basis of accounting. This method recognizes revenues when they 
become measurable and available. Expenses are recognized under this method as 
they are incurred. 

Revenue Recognition - Property tax revenues are recognized when they become 
available. Available means then due or past due and receivable within the rurre 
period or expected to be collected soon enough thereafter to be used to pay 
liabilities of the current period. 

All other revenues are recognized throughout the vear when cash is received. 
Receipts during tho sixty days immediately following the close of the fiscal yea 
are also recognized as available revenue. 



-118- 



In applying the susceptible to accrual concept to intergovernmental revenues, the 
legal and contractual requirements of the numerous individual programs are used as 
guidance. There are, however, essentially two types of these revenues. In one, 
monies must be expended on the specific purpose or project before any amounts will 
be paid to the town, therefore, revenues are recognized based upon the 
expenditures recorded. In the other, monies are virtually unrestricted as to 
purpose of expenditure and are usually revocable only for failure to comply with 
prescribed compliance requirements. These resources are reflected as revenues at 
the time of receipt or earlier if the susceptible to accrual criteria is met. 

Expenses - Expenditures are recorded during the year on a cash disbursement 
basis. In addition, as required by Massachusetts General Laws, disbursements made 
during the fifteen days immediately following the close of each fiscal year and 
which pertain to the prior year are recorded as warrants payable and expenses as 
of June 30th. 



Purchase orders outstanding at June 30th related to annual operating expenses are 
recorded as encumbrances and, accordingly, as a reservation of fund balances at 
that date. 



Deferred Revenue - Property taxes and other revenues that are measurable but not 
available have been classified as deferred revenue on June 30, 1985 as follows: 



Outstanding property taxes 

June 30, 1985 $ 531,345.40 

Less: Collections July and 

August, 1985 21,255.28 

Deferred revenue property taxes $ 510,140.12 

Revenues reserved until collected: 
Motor vehicle excise net of 

July and August 1982 collections $ 308,324.51 

Special assessments net of July and 

August 1982 collections 318,049.25 

Due from other Governments 620,844.79 

Departmental net of July and August 

1982 collections 114,627.58 

Special Tax 13,024.28 

Tax liens 173, 316. 72 

Deferred revenue - other receivables $ 1,548,187.63 



Departures from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles 

For years prior to 1985, the town presented its financial statements on the basis of 
accounting practices prescribed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of 
Revenue. These practices differed in many significant respects from G.A.A.P. 

During 1981. the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued a revised uniform municipal 
accounting system entitled "U.M.A.S." The departures from G.A.A.P. under this revised 
system have been significantly narrowed. The town has adopted a modified U.M.A.S. for 
its financial statement presentation for 1985. 

The significant departures from G.A.A.P. included in the Town of Wilmington's financial 
statements are: 



a. Retirement benefits are provided for on a "pay-as-you-go" basis rather than an 
acceptable acturarial cost methods (see note 5). 

b. General fixed asset acquisitions are recorded as expenditures at the time 
purchases are made rather than being capitalized in a general fixed asset group of 
accounts. 



c. Purchases for materials and supplies inventories are recorded as expenditures 
rather than assets at the time of purchase. 

Reserve for Encumbrances 

The balance in this account is made up of current and prior years unexpended 
appropriations carried forward. 

-119- 



4 . Unreserved Fund Balance - Designated 



Certain budgetary surpluses and deficits must, according to the General Laws of the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, be utilized to reduce or be raised in the next subsequent 
tax rate. These items have been included within the unreserved fund balance pursuant to 
,G. A. A. P. but have been connoted as designated for identification purposes. These items 
included r*he following: 



General fund: 



Designated to reduce the 1986 tax levy $ 300,000.00 

State and county overestimates 10,748.46 

Reserve for abatement and exemption deficits ( 1 , 335 . 50 ) 

$ 309,412.96 

Federal revenue sharing funds: 

Designated for expenditures $ 460,000.00 
Special revenue fund: 

Designated to reduce the 1983 tax levy $ 434,462.00 
Trust and agency fund: 

Designated to reduce the 1986 tax levy $ 7,303.00 

The amount designated to reduce the 1986 tax levy was voted from available funds by the local 
appropriatory body (called the town meeting in Massachusetts towns) during the spring 1985 
annual town meeting. 



5 . Pension Plans 

Substantially, all employees of the town, except school teachers and certain other school 
department employees are members of the Middlesex County Contributory Retirement System. 
The pension plan provides retirement benefits for members who have obtained a certain age 
and for periods of service. Members contribute certain percentages of their salaries or 
wages to the plan. In addition, the Massachusetts Department of Banking and Insurance 
determines an amount, each year, that the town must contribute to the system in order to 
meet that year's projected benefit payments. The town's contributuion to the system for 
the year ended June 30, 1985 amounted to $593,940.00 

This so called "pay-as-you-go" method does not provide for the funding of any unfunded 
liabilities that might exist as a result of an actuarial determination of the fiscal 
condition of the plan. The amount of the unfunded liability of the Middlesex County 
Retirement System is actuarially determined periodically and reported to the county by 
the Massachusetts Retirement Law Commission. The most recent actuarial valuation was 
prepared as of January 1, 1983. At that date, the actuarially computed value of unfunded 

Fension benefits amounted to $16,335,538 and is not reflected as a liability on the 
inancial statements. 



The school teachers and other non-member school department employees participate in a 
plan administered by the Massachusetts Teacher's Retirement Board. The town does not 
directly contribute to this plan. 

6. Unemployment Compensation 

The town is on the reimbursable method for paying unemployment compensation. Under the 
reimbursable method, the Massachusetts Employment Security Division sends a list monthly 
to the community of who has received benefits. The community then reimburses the 
Massachusetts Employment Security Division for these claims against the town.
